Everything Brides-to-be just don't want to hear 15 minutes after their engaged.

Stop Asking Me These 7 Questions And Just Let Me Enjoy Being Engaged, Dammit!

I'm recently engaged to my boyfriend of three years, and it's still in the process of hitting me. I know many people say you aren't supposed to feel different and at first, I concurred.

Now? It's starting to seem surreal. I keep looking down at my finger like-oh shit, I forgot that was there. Despite all the tingles and butterflies I still find myself feeling thinking back to engagement day, I get just as many questions that occasionally take away from it all.

Let me enjoy being engaged.

Here are seven things to stray away from when you want to ask the "bride-to-be" bride-to-be questions...

1. "So...have you set a date yet?"

Yeah Carol, how did you know? It has been 15 minutes since my engagement and I already have the DJ, Venue, and registry all figured out.


Anxiety is a real thing

Planning is stressful

It takes more than a day.

I think that pretty much covers that.

2. "Will I be Invited?"

Yeah of course. I haven't talked to you in three years, you have only ever texted me when you needed information or a favor, and I'm not even sure you know my fiancé's name, but I'll pay $75.00 for your plate and a guest.

No prob, Bob.

3. "How did he do it?"

Along with you asking this, 1.5 million also asked, so just understand how many answers that truthfully requires. Chances are if you don't know about how he did it, we weren't that close of friends anyway, and if you're aware I'm engaged, there's probably a post about it somewhere you're able to take a glimpse over.

Do you mind piecing together the puzzles for me? My brain is still a little fuzzy from the other 500 times I told this story today.

4. "When will you guys start having children?"

Oh, I'm really glad you asked Karen! So, let's see. I got engaged 20 minutes ago, my wedding is already planned, Steve from first grade is coming and bringing his guest I've never met, and at this point, I've told my engagement story so many times I forgot how it actually happened. So I'm going to guess we'll start trying tonight. I'll keep you posted though.

5. "So who all is in your bridal party?"

For the wedding? That isn't even a "thing" yet? Because. I. Just. Got. Proposed. To. And. Have. Not. Had. Any. Time. To. Think. About. Anything. Except. The. Same. Questions. I. Keep. Getting. Asked?


You're in it.


6. "What kind of wedding will it be?"

With the extra two minutes I had in between filling everyone else in on the best day of my life, I haven't really got to create my full Pinterest-Dream wedding. So please do forgive me if I'm lacking on the exact placement of my centerpieces or what they'll be. I'll be sure to work on that for ya.

7. "Have you booked a place yet?"

Jesus H. Sharon, it was yesterday. How fast do you want me to move this along? Some of us are enjoying the ride before paying for it.


Us bride-to-be's will get there..

Maybe just not as fast as you'd like.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
